I am the Momma of 8 children. Seven here on earth and 1 precious little Angel in Heaven. My children range in age from 2 months to 25 years. My 6 year old was born with a laundry list of complex medical conditions. He has Trisomy 21 (Down Syndrome), a rare brain malformation, which resulted from a mutation of the PAX-6 gene, bilateral anophthalmia, which means that he was born without any eyes, so he is totally blind. At the age of 2 1/2 months old he had to have a tracheostomy to help aid in his breathing. He is hearing impaired, with normal hearing in his left ear and has profound deafness in his right. At 3 1/2 years he had surgery to have a Mic-Key button placed in his stomach (feeding Tube), which is mainly used to give him his medications. He also has insulin dependant diabetes and wears an insulin pump, which gives him a continuous dose of insulin. Even with his many dis"abilities," including being globally developmentally delayed, he has accomplished more than anyone would have ever believed that he could. Join us in our journey living with a Dis"Abled" child....

Sunday School Podcast - The Police Station and More

Timmy's ear tube(s) came out a little over a week ago. What was to follow? Of course, an ear infection in his left ear, his good ear.

After 3 days of being on an antibotic, Timmy spikes a temperature of 102.5 on Thursday Morning. I gave him a dose of Motrin, which brought the temperature down nicely. All day Timmy didn't spike a temperature. He was his smiling, happy, laughing self. In the early evening Timmy spiked another Temperature of 102.7. He was given a dose of Motrin, which brought  the temperature down. Timmy showed no other sign of illness. His ear(s) aren't draining and they don't look like they may be inflamed.

Could this spike in temperature be a result of Daddy giving Timmy his 2nd 4mg. dose of Zanaflex, to try to help Timmy get back to sleep, following a middle of the night diaper change? I seem to recall something like this occuring awhile back, but can't remember if it was during an ear infection or if an illness  followed the temperature spike.

I have my fingers crossed that the spike in temperature isn't a result of the antibotic masking some underlying horrible illness, which will flare up once the antibotic regiment is complete.

Unfortunately, being Timmy had a temperature he had to miss the field trip on Thursday to the Police Station. There were other awesome pictures of Timmy that were taken earlier in the week.

So enjoy the Podcast.
